We had a large and very dedicated team of make up artists who worked solidly to deliver some really amazing make up on a very tight budget.

We had an incredible team of zombie volunteers for 'horde day' when 80 people in full undead make up ran up the river in Blaise Castle Estate.

It rained an awful lot. Our amazing runners kept the mill free of mud by digging it out every morning... for a week.

Planning & Budget

Blaise took about six months of prep. The budget was approx £3,600. Half of this was from Bristol City Council, and the rest was crowd funded.
